the american original. for over three decades the sharpest sources, talk. >>> presidential mismaking. >> president obama arranged a new year's deal to elude the fiscal cliff. republicans and democrats both consented to the deal. now neither party is happy with the outcome. democrats complain that obama caved. because the president's plan allows george w. bush's tax cuts to become permanent. for those making less than $400,000 a year. these democrat critics fear that obama's second term instead of being quote, unquote bold will be quote, unquote cautious as his first term. and on the right, republicans moan and grown and say that -- groan and say that obama is demeaning in the way he deals with house speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in c

crowley, bureau chief. we talked about the executive orders there and there is real stuff there. the meat of all this is the legislation that obama is proposing and asking congress to act. you have republicans and a number of pro gun democrats including the senate majority leader harry reid who does not seem enthusiastic at the start of the debate right now. realistically, what do you think the most is that we can get out of this in terms of gun control laws? >> not that much. the orders are incremental and they will make some difference. they are not going to solve the problem as it is diagnosed. i don't see action in the congress. i wouldn't be surprised about a fig leaf measure and congress wants to show they did something that is toothless. i think that might be a realistic option. i don't think you will see very much in the way of the package the president proposed unless public opinion does seem to be moving a little bit. after the other big shootings, you don't see sentiment in favor of gun control. if the president wants to keep driving this and followed through more than i and ot

the filibuster, and can i start with the last one steve, the last one from president obama so frustrated with these house republicans, to harry reid, who is actually talking about curbing or to some extent eliminating the senate filibuster so that the minority in the senate can't block his legislation and president obama's legislation. they seem so frustrated with the rights of the minorities, with the rights of the dissenters, i know it's frustrating, but is it not a pillar of this country's backbone? i mean, this is-- when they're in the minority, they may be very sorry that they went to such efforts to eliminate these rights. >> i think they would be. i think their assumption is they're not going to be in the minority anytime soon, but if you go back and look at the kinds of things that both democrats in congress and outside liberal agitators were saying when democrats were the minority, and harry reid took to the senate floor numerous times to call it an abuse of the majority when republicans were pushing things. so, both parties flip sides on this, but it's fascinating to look at th
